Yes, that's right :)) i have a damn coupon 20% off anything (available 6 days only LUL), some "obsolete" tier 8 prems like Is-6 and T-34 and a desire to waste some $ on a tier 8 prem. I was thinking M4 Revalorise  / 112 / Lowe are viable choices ; i really don't care a about the nation i\m buying it for fun + credit grinding. I opened this to see opinions on which are the most fun + credit makers of tier VIII perms :D

 

Thanks :>

1. Defender

2. Defender

3. Defender

4. Defender

...

79. Defender

80. Patriot

81. Patriot

...

127. Patriot

128. Löwe

 

Would by my ranking ;)

 

but tbh, Ravioli is kinda fun as well. The gun is quiet nice, the tank itself is... okish? a tier 6 platform with a nice gun ^^

 

/edit: that chinese t8 td looks good as well. i don't own one, but as an enemy that tank is kinda scary because of the combination of mobility and firepower. but a tank w/o a turret is a bad tank in the current meta imo.

/edit2: you asked for meds n heavys. so forget the last part :D

Ravioli was a pleasant surprise.

 

I would wait for next weeks "Tier VIII of the week" in any case.

Ravioli is fun, Loewe is good after buffs and is a good money maker, but if I really wanted to spend money on tier 8 premium I'd buy Defender or Skorpion G.

1. Object 252U, just because a retard might actually think its an IS-6 at first look, also gets bit more camo if you mount camo, so vanilla 252U > Defender is actually true :trollface:

2. Object 252U Defender

3. doesnt matter

 

Spoiler

Got a coupon too.

Won't be using it until something is done to make tier VIII premium play better.

Money lost for WG, that's the second coupon I won't be using and I used to spend as much as 200€/month on the game for the family.

Depends on what you want.

 

If you want to make money:

lowe, s1, chinese TD, skorpion, defender, lorraine 40t

 

if you want to have op broken tonk:

defender, chrysler, patriot, liberte, chinese TD

 

i suppose most fun+most money would be the chinese TD, then probably patriot/lorraine

Fun at T8. Good one. 

 

Aside from the eternal Defender, WZ-120-1G FT. TDs can be useful regardless of matchmaking, and you're a decent brawler against medium tanks.

 

Panther/M10 (and VK4503 to some extent) are also worth a look. Reduced credit gain, yes, but you're likely to play it more because you can usually actually do something in a battle. It's fun enough to compensate, I think, and works well as long as you don't trade shots with T8s (in a one-on-one situation it's very likely to win; better DPM than most T8s, 1300 hitpoints and enough weight to make ramming an option).

 

Patriot and Liberte... I think the Löwe works better in T9/10 battles. For organized play (SHs, TBs) all three should work, but depends on what kind of tactics you use. Löwe is great in TBs, but might be too slow for strongholds.

Panther/M10 is not bad.

It's mediocre.

 

Literally only good thing about it is frontal armor, which can be immediately negated by premium ammo. Otherwise it has tier 6 heavy tank gun (srsly T-150 has same DPM and alpha), bad mobility and bad gun handling. It's also a huge target and has no side armor, which makes it a big arty target.

VK4503 makes the same credits as tier 8 premium tanks, which is pretty apt since it also costs as much as tier 8 premium heavies.

1. Defender - As it's a tier 8.5

2. Lorraine - As it's an autoloader, great for credits and fun to play.

3. Patriot - As it's a good all round medium​ heavy tank.

M4 ravioli is a beast. The shell velocity is immense on this thing. Great for shutting down that darn lights.

 

Otherwise buy some gold now and get the tech tree prem tanks you want later, i.e. at Christmas, when they are discounted (15 % for tier 8 and 30 % for tier 6,7 mostly).

Easy to play Defender.

Need some  sort of brain to make it work  Patriot.

Pretty  hard to play well Skorpion G.

Most fun in my garage Lorrain 40 T.

I tested out the Ravioli on the test server and the tank seemed ok, and prints credits like no other if you are good in it. The  cheap ammo, high alpha combo with high velocity ammo works well if you are looking for credits.

right, listen here, i own all of them so...

if u want a medium that you can buy right now...revalorise if u want big alpha with kind of meh pen, but good gun handling and shell velocity, but for me at least, it is too f-in slow..it should have the 48kph m4 has, but anyway,revalorise is a good choice...for the 2nd med choice...i know a lot will say i'm crazy or crap...but t54 mod1...it's a [edited]beast...the gun is beautiful, the 7 degrees of gun depression are very good, and the armour on it...especially the turret...damn..i bullied [edited]mauses in it while being hull down...and if u get in a top tier mm in that tank...farmers will envy you for the amount of farming you will do against those low tiers in mod1...now...for the bat crapcrazy choice...t-34-3...i'm not gonna comment on it more than i have too...cancer gun handling, cancer accuracy, good armour, ok speed, nice alpha, doesn't see tier 10s.

if u want a heavy...lowe...if u want good pen, ok-ish armour and crapdpm, or...112 if u want actual freaking armour, more than decent mobility, and the classic pref mm tier 8 122mm gun...actually...forget about lowe...that tank is made out of lego...if u get shot in the lower plate...engine dies, fires everywhere, ammorack blows off, everything dies in that thing once it gets shot in the lower plate..plus it's slow...so for the heavy selection..112 is the only decent choice from what is available right now.

now if i were you...i would choose either 112 or mod1...but the choice is yours.
